Work day set for Henry’s Trail in AuSable Forks

JAY — There is still a chance to help out with the creation of Henry’s Trail, a new addition to Gale/Pattno Youth Park in the Grove section of AuSable Forks.  

A volunteer work day will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m Sunday, weather permitting, to tie up any loose ends before the onset of winter.

Any volunteers who wish to be a part of bringing Henry’s Trail to life are asked to meet at the Grove Youth Facilities.

“This new trail, dedicated to the memory of Town of Jay resident Henry Caito, will give the children of the towns of Jay and Black Brook a new, safe and educational place to play,” Jay Town Supervisor Randy Douglas said in a news release.

“It’s yet another example of how this community rallies together to achieve great goals.”

Henry was 7 when he and his grandmother Theresa Caito were killed in a 2011 car accident.
